Dolce & Gabbana gets called out for ripping off Diet Prada
Oh Stefano, you've done it again.
In an interesting turn of events, Diet Prada has called out Dolce & Gabbana for copying one of their own designs - their own design that was making fun of D&G in the first place.
Confused? Let's re-cap.
Back in October, Diet Prada accused Dolce & Gabbana of copying Gucci's in-store displays in a now-infamous Instagram post. Stefano Gabbana, co-founder of the brand, responded out on their socials by calling Diet Prada ‘idiots’, demanded an apology and started the hashtag #PleaseSaySorryToMe.
It involved some hilarious back and forth.
"Darling," he wrote. "I make this job from 32 years, we made all this world in the '90…. so, if you are ignorante is much better for you don't say anythyng about this image… Gucci copy us in many different way!!! This is one of… please say sorry to me!!❤️". Diet Prada came back with "@stefanogabbana I think your visual display team should say sorry to you! 😭💔"
Gabbana then responded, "@diet_prada dear you need to take fashion lesson in some school before to speak 😂😂❤️❤️ information is the top in fashion history", before Diet Prada delivered the ultimate blow, "@stefanogabbana we have…there wasn't much written about DG unfortunately 😰😂💔💔".
In true form, Diet Prada went on to make a T-shirt sporting the then trending hashtag, which brings us up to speed.
Now, Dolce & Gabbana has released a parody of Diet Prada’s T-shirt, at 12 times the price. Also using the phrase ‘Please Say Sorry 2 Me’. We have to admit, it probably could have been done better.
